's first democratically elected president. they accused mohamed morsi of behaving like a pharaoh, making a power grab by presidential decree. during the arab spring, egyptians came together on tahrir square to top it will country's long-time dictator hosni mubarak. today mr. morsi's critics clashed with his supporters while police fired tear gas canisters into the crowd. "he's saying that he's our god" said this protester. "he's made a mistake." and this woman said that after marching for freedom the country's ended up with a new dictator. in alexandria, an angry crowd stormed the offices at the muslim brotherhood from which president morsi draws his support. they ransacked the building and then set it on fire. from outside his presidential palace today, mr. morsi addressed the nation. he said the new measures are designed to cut through political gridlock. "it was allah's will that i became the president" he said "and we need to go forward with the new steps, not backwards." but only 52% of egyptians voted for the president. now many of those who didn't worry that mr. morsi wants to sti
temporary. he said he'll relinquish them next year when egyptians will elect a parliament and vote on a new constitution. many people here accept that. but his political opponents like george ishaq are suspicious of both president morsi and the muslim brotherhood, the islamist group from which he draws his support. >> reporter: with their positions so hardened, finding a solution to this crisis that all egyptians can accept may be impossible. some people here are trying to mount a legal challenge to president morsi's decree but given that he has made himself immune to the courts that may be useless. and one prominent egyptian liberal had even suggested that the military might intervene. that like so much else that is happening here does not bode well for egyptian democracy. >> glor: holly williams, thank you. we're joined by former undersecretary of state nicholas burns. how do you assess the power struggle that is going on right now? >> well, jeff, this is a big and dramatic moment in the course of the egyptian revolution. you have, if you will, the new egypt represented by mohamed morsi a
